This newborn photography sessions took us to the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, where Katee Grace lived for almost 10 years before moving to Los Angeles.
Sometimes transitioning with a new baby and an older sibling is as fun as this! This big brother love seriously melted my heart! I go way back with this family, having photographed their wedding 10-ish years ago, then shooting their first child’s newborn photography session and here we are with the second addition.
I’ll share a little from mommy’s viewpoint:
“Our session was simply splendid. Katee made us all feel at ease from beginning to end, even the kids were happy and pleasant around her wanting to play even after! These pictures are treasures to me, even with the extra effort and energy needed even with these sleepless nights, it’s all worth it. Since this is the second time around, I know so acutely that we don’t get these times back. We will cherish these pictures forever. Thank you, Katee.”
During Family Newborn Photography Sessions when we have older children, there’s definitely a bit of a different flow, one that yields to the seasons and ages of older children as well as that of the newest babe.
We started almost straight out the gate with some sibling love photos due to the excitement of big brother, you’ll see a big of a progression from forced cuddles to wiling kisses… Such is life with a baby and big brother though, right?! Big brothers love hard, as they should.
The cuddle nap time with mommy and her newest babe is one of my all-time favorites. I imagine it printed 16×20 with a wide mat and gold frame hung in a changing room or bathroom… in 20 years I see this mama looking at that photo everyday remembering those sweet, tender moments and early years in a house full of boys.
Call the studio today with any questions you may have about newborn photography sessions, family sessions or anything else! I look forward to hearing from you and photographing your beautiful family the way you’ve always dreamed.
